What is the number in series name?

When I add something to series column, calibre adds a [1] in front of it. Is it the book number in the series or something else?

EDIT: Nevermind, it is really the number of the book in he series.

It is the hint that you may need to set it to the correct place number in the series.
The number is NOT limited to Integers. 3.5 can be used (ex. revised book 3)
0 (Zero) can be used for books that belong to the group, but are not part of the series: "Star Trek Writers Guide".

I use "Save to disk rather than Send to device because I file books on my reader by: Series folder / Series ID#-Title-Author
Author is last or omitted in the naming because many of the series titles I read have many and multiple different authors.

BTW I found that the series index can be edited from the main library lis screen without having to bring up the Meta-Data editor.
Just change the numbers between the square braces:
be careful) I have not tested the error recovery in this mode.
